    ae86 front brakes on a te51????

    I heard of people uses the ae86 front brakes on old corollas and 80s corollas.
    Never seen one done on a te51. What all would have to be done? Is there links to threads of this conversion on other cars.? I just thinking of sense I'm working on the car why not redo the brakes also. It damn sure needs it that's all I know.

    Just swap the whole AE86 strut with brakes and hubs using your stock TE51 steering knuckles and top plate.

    Also, you can do what I did (which is a bunch more work) and that is:

    Welding/filling the holes on the AE86 brake dust shield, then redrilling to suit whatever strut you have. The only reason I did this is because I already had modified AE71 struts with coilovers on them and didn't want to buy new hardware/re-fab the coilovers, so in my case this was the "simpler" (read: much more complicated) solution to an easy problem haha! :mrgreen:
